Ah, Gimli, you old rascal. But I love the deeper understanding behind the dwarf's prodding. He realizes that he will not always be around and that Legolas is going to need someone once he's gone. Someone that won't leave him the way everyone else has. Kudos for an insightful dwarf, and kudos to Legolas, also, for taking the hint and going with it.

Oh, great moment. It's so nice to think of Legolas in love and finding contentment beyond the seas -- but even nicer that it's Gimli who goads him on. It reminded me of the moments at Helm's Deep where they counted their kills. But it's nice that that competitiveness is finding an outlet in peacetime.

Legolas in love—and in only one hundred believable words! I liked Gimli's observation, that Legolas will need companionship that will outlast his mortal friends, some of whom he has already lost.

A very cute drabble; in the West, Legolas finds himself somewhat smitten. Gimli approves.
